#1 Add some Wine Wall Art to your Kitchen Decor
A party is not a party without food and wine. This is why I infused food and drink in my choice of wall art. Wine wall art seems like a practical option because wine will never be absent whenever I am entertaining friends and families at home. Fortunately, wall arts featuring wine look sophisticated.
Of course, there are wine paintings, wine wallpaper and wine art that you can display on your kitchen’s wall. Many popular painters and modern impressionists have dedicated their life and talent to depicting wine and the art of making wine in the canvass.

Wine wall art can be instrumental in creating a festive atmosphere especially during this season of entertaining. Home-cooked food and a glass of good wine seems to be more enjoyable when surrounded with great company and beautiful wall décor.
Being known as a wine enthusiast, it is apt for me to hang artworks that has something to do with wines. Here are some of my choices:
Wine Splash Wall Art
The striking contrast between the purple splash of wine and the immaculate white background will surely catch the eye of the guests. It is perfect for homes with modern décor.
Merlot is my favorite kind of red wine, so I think this wall art would express my own personality as well as add beauty to my dining room where I usually hold intimate dinners with friends and families.
3 Piece Grapes and Wall Art
Big art pieces look great whether the room is small or spacious. Sophisticated 3-piece art prints like this creates a focal point that catches the eye so easily.
My small kitchen felt larger since I hung this wine wall art. A triptych is one way to create an amazing visual impact to your Kitchen’s wine decor. So rather than choosing an expensive, life-size painting, this 3-piece set makes a room look more expensive.
Sentimental Wine Wall Decals and Wording
Some, if not all areas in my home, like the living room also serve as a place for relaxation. Sweet and positive messages like the one shown above makes an area conducive to distressing. Sentimental pieces should not be confined in the four walls of the bedroom. These decorative pieces can also add life to the living room. It can also turn into a conversation piece when entertaining.
Rustic wine words or words about wine will make a great decoration for your room. Famous words such as “Good friends, good wine, good times.” or “There is always time for a glass of wine.” will inspire you to serve the best wine in your collection.
A lot of wine enthusiasts would also want to savor every sip with a good book so insert a few good reads in between those wine racks!
#2 Add Wine Cork Wall Art to your Kitchen Wine Decor
Wine cork art pieces are the most creative way to repurpose old wine corks. People like me who love wines usually end up with boxes full of wine corks. Because of they come from good quality evergreen trees, I always feel like it will be such a waste to throw them to the garbage bin.
I don’t have much artistic talent but I would try doing anything if it is worthwhile. Turning my cork collection into a work of art seems like one of those projects that are worth the time and effort.
Using the little creativity I have, I was able to create a few wall art pieces with rustic feel in them. Cork has an earthy color which makes it perfect for creating rustic or country style wall decor. As I started to work on them I discovered how easy they are to work with. The projects I did were only composed of simple cutting, painting, and gluing.
Tips for cutting Cork
When it comes to cutting, I found out that boiling the wine corks make the cutting easier. This keeps them from crumbling. When cutting, a coping saw is the best tool to use. Make sure to go slow while cutting each piece of cork. A block of wood will help a lot in making the cut smooth.
Some crafters I know also use X-acto knives because they are super sharp and perfect for carving out the details on the wine cork. The cut edges may feel a bit rough but this can be remedied using a fine sanding paper. My trick is to place sand paper on the table then swipe the wine cork across it until satisfied with the smoothness.
Tips for coloring Cork
Dyeing or painting cork gives them a nicer, brighter color. I make sure to keep away from really dark shades. I like to keep the printing and the grain of the cork visible as this is what makes them interesting.
I would advise against following the directions in most dye packs. I use less dye than recommended. It is a fairly easy thing to do, actually. I just prepared the dye, placed the corks inside a zip lock bag, and left it overnight. When painting or dyeing corks for any wine cork art it is fun and advisable to get creative and experiment a bit. The first time I did this, my shirt got splashed over and my hands were purplish because I made the mistake of not wearing gloves and apron.
Tips for gluing Cork
The gluing part is probably the easiest. Wine corks are super light and a simple glue gun is enough to keep the corks from breaking apart. Some of my craftier friends recommend stronger crafting glues like the E6000 craft adhesive. They say it is best for projects that may be exposed to constant wear and tear.
Creating a wine cork art does not require advanced crafting skills. As long as you know how to do the above three steps you will successfully be able to create art projects using wine corks.

Another idea is to pour in sand along with a few pieces of shells and rocks. You can also drop in different colored marbles. There are a lot of different colors and sizes of marble.

Illuminate your makeshift lava lamp by placing the wine bottle in front of a lamp or on top of a light source.
Make sure that the mouth of your bottle is completely sealed to avoid spilling the oil/water mixture as you shake up your lava lamp.
#8 Wine Bottle Candle Holder
Turn your beautiful wine bottles into candle holders! Decorate the wine bottles by filling it with beads, sand or marbles and placing a candle on top.
Wine bottle centerpieces are perfect for special occasions. Wine bottles can become great centerpieces with just a few small adjustments.
Transform any simple dining table into an elegant dining area with six or more wine bottles with long candles. Make your candle holders even more interesting by using bottles of different heights and sizes in the group.
To create a dramatic effect, light the candles first and allow the wax to drip along the sides before you invite your guests to come on the table.
